UFO Busting #145


It's Saturday!  Welcome back to another day of UFO busting...or creating...whatever your heart desires.  This week I finished two of the quilts I wanted to make for an upcoming blog hop in July.

This quilt is made using Moda's Hoopla from a few years back.  Since it's been sitting patiently, I decided this quit would be a much better use than my original plan.  I am busting to show you the entire quilt.

I've also pieced two blocks in Natalia Bonner's Let's Stitch a Year of Stars QAL.  Each month Natalia shares how she quilts a block in the quilt on YouTube (free to everyone) and a different way to quilt it for those that follow her in Patreon.  I am super excited to give my 4n1 Mini Rulers even more of a work out.

But for now, I need to finish getting my supplies together, mainly quilt sandwiches, for String and Story's Free Motion Quilting Academy that kicks off this week.  I also need to get back to quilting the baby quilt that is under the needle.  I have high hopes of finishing all the 4.5" squares this weekend.  Fingers crossed.

When I take a look at last week's party, oh my, I'm seeing red y'all...but in a super good way.  First up we have Melisa at Pinker n Punkin Quilting & Stitching and her yard sale win!

Thanks to her hubby spotting a great yard sale, Melisa was able to land this bow tie beauty!  I'm not even going to tell you how much she was able to grab this for.  You need to swing over immediately and read about.  Disclaimer...make sure you are sitting down.  I'm still a bit light headed.  Way to go girl!!

Next up, we have Maggie over at Making a Lather and she has the red bits flying everywhere.


She's been going through her red scraps and working on not one, but two super fun scrappy challenge projects.  Make sure you stop by and check them out.  Maggie also has some super fun and exciting news...go congratulate her!!!

Now it's your turn.  Link up below and show us what you've been up to over the past week.
